Small Space, Big Function

When you have 1,000 square feet or less, you have to come up with innovative space-saving solutions. See what four creative homeowners devised to organize their space!

  • The seat slides all the way under the desk when not in use.
  • There isn't much counter space, so a glass cutting board that fits over the stovetop is used.
  • Built-ins are a great use of dead space in a wall.
  • The screened-in porch is both sophisticated and outdoorsy; it's furnished to be a comfortable living space, but it's close to nature, too.
  • The living room is all about style over function.
  • This couch brings a fun and whimsical touch to the room.
  • The credenza incorporates 26 different design ideas for organizing stuff.
  • Is it a kitchen or a bedroom?
  • Displaying collections on a wall frees up valuable shelf space.
  • This living room is a contrast between light and dark.
  • The large bed takes up most of the space in the small room.
  • As one looks across the room, the eye flows across the sleek granite to the living area beyond.
  • The touch screen commands the lights and climate, as well as the homeowners' music and movie collections.
  • The curtain separates the areas while still letting natural light through and maintaining an open feel.
